Arthurdale Heritage can always use an extra hand to help with the various day-to-day tasks we have to complete.

Tour Guides
During the spring, summer, and early fall we rely on volunteer tour guides to help interpret our historic site for visitors. If you are interested in showing people around and welcoming them to our lovely community, sign up to become a tour guide!

Office Support
Help out by volunteering in the AHI office. We need help with mailings, filing, cleaning, answering the phone, etc.

Event Volunteers
Our events have historically been primarily how most people get involved with AHI. The valuable support of volunteers makes everything run smoothly. Typically we need help serving food, cleaning, setting up, tearing down, parking cars, collecting tickets, selling food, etc.


Our committees report to our Board of Directors and they work to implement plans that help AHI achieve its goals. We’re always interested in new ideas, so if you are interested in being involved, this is a fantastic opportunity to make a difference.

Fundraising Committee
No organization can operate without funding. The fundraising committee oversees the various fundraising efforts for Arthurdale Heritage including appeals, events, donations, grants, the Craft Shop, etc.

Events Planning Committee
This committee helps plan our events. We have numerous events throughout the year, such as our annual Elimination Dinner in the Spring, and the New Deal Festival in the summer, a fall event and a winter event. They also plan several children’s events at Easter, Halloween, and Christmas.

Craft Shop Committee
This committee runs the Arthurdale Craft Shop.

Maintenance Committee
This committee helps us plan renovation projects and repairs our facilities. There are lots of opportunities for hands-on building and repair projects.
